Bus Strikes – October 2023

Saturday 14 October sees the beginning of the second week of industrial action by the bus company Go North East, the last day of which is Friday 20 October

We have spoken to Nexus and Go North East who have confirmed today that all of the scholars’ services will be running.  However, public services will be significantly impacted.  Therefore, we ask parents and carers of students who are potentially affected to make alternative transport arrangements where possible if their child uses public transport, as there will be no skeleton services in operation.

For holders of Go North East Season tickets (weekly, monthly, annual passes) please note these will be accepted on Tyne and Wear Metro services during the strike periods; please show staff on the Metro your pass to travel.

If your child usually travels to school by car, then please allow additional time for your journey as the roads will be busier than normal.

Academy staff are aware of the situation and will make appropriate allowances for any students who may arrive slightly later than normal as a result of the strikes.
